Turn your thumb green at educational gardening event

If your gardening space is tight, learn how to make the most of it with Maximizing Your Raised Garden II Continuing to Grow More in the Space You Have.

The program is presented by the Greenwich Community Gardens (GCG) on May 18 at 10 a.m. at the Armstrong Court Community Organic Garden.

Join Alan Gorkin, horticulturist at Lake Avenue Farm for the second of the GCG’s three-season series, as he plans and plants a 4×8-foot raised bed garden with warm weather crops. Learn about plant selection and the growing methods that will help you get the most out of a summer raised bed garden.

Participants will check on the cool-weather crops planted at the first gardening session, talk about companion and succession planting and discuss the good and bad insects that may be encountered in the garden.

Plants for this class were grown and donated by horticulturist John Horn. Each participant will go home with a plant. The harvest from the class demonstration gardens will be donated to Neighbor to Neighbor.

The class fee is $15. Space is limited.
